The iPhone 14 Plus, which Apple introduced last year, is more popular than the iPhone 13 mini model, according to a survey.
On the 20th (local time), foreign media reported that iPhone 14 Plus display shipments had increased by 59% compared to the iPhone 13 mini model by April, citing a report by market research company DSCC (Display Supply Chain).
According to the report, the number of display shipments of the iPhone 14 line up to April increased by 2% compared to the iPhone 13 line. While shipments of the general model decreased by 36%, shipments of the Pro model and the model increased Pro Max 22% and 23%, respectively.
“Although sales of the lower-end models have been slow, Apple’s revenue should be higher this year as the high-end models are selling much more,” said DSCC.
Additionally, in the case of the iPhone 14 Plus, sales were the weakest among the iPhone 14 line, but sales increased by 59% compared to the discontinued iPhone 13 Mini. Apple first introduced a 5.4-inch mini model in 2020, but after two years of sluggish sales, it discontinued the mini model in 2022 and introduced a new 6.1-inch plus model.
Apple is expected to introduce four types of iPhone 15 line this year: ▲iPhone 15 ▲iPhone 15 Plus ▲iPhone 15 Pro ▲iPhone 15 Pro Max.
